just words

Paul Pankert

The Orchestre royal de chambre de Wallonie plays Paul Pankert’s composition just words at the Belgian Music Days.

The superposition of contrasting layers is a particular feature of Paul Pankert’s composition style. To preserve the clarity of the discourse, a strict framework is required through the use of minimalist basic material.

just words consists of a few contrasting musical fragments that are gradually varied and overlayed, but each element remains autonomous and transparent.

The „spoken“ dialogue that takes place between the solo viola and the orchestra and its imperturbable repetition give the piece a meditative character.
